Spring Bursts Forward and Easter Greetings!

Spring has Sprung!

It’s finally arrived!  Spring!  All of the goodness that one can expect from this time of year has come forth with a wave of warm air and blossoms ready to burst open!! Being filled with the joy of the season, I took to my new studio space to create some still life photographs inspired by the freshness in the air and the Easter holiday. Bouquets of flowers, farm fresh eggs, and collections of rustic tidbits provided plenty fodder for the imagination!

Farm Fresh

Living on a farm, I tend to gravitate towards all things rustic!  As a result, the things that I collect tend to have a certain ‘character’ to them.  They’re never perfect and yet they are!  If you have the farmhouse style bug, you know what I mean! This collection of photos is a perfect example of what I’m talking about! The teapot might have a chip, but it still holds tulips!  The old camera doesn’t work, but it looks great arranged on a shelf!  These little eclectic things seem to work together in perfect harmony!

Still Life Photography

I love the way still life photography seems to capture a fleeting moment in time.  Even if the whole scene has been staged, it is as if we get a glimpse into a beautiful world that finds a moment to savor. A little nugget in time captured forever on camera or in print!  The flowers will fade, but the print will live on!

Happy Easter!

Final thoughts:  Happy Easter to you all!  May your day be filled with love and happiness!  Also, Happy Spring!  I hope you go out into the budding world and take in all the beauty that you can!

Cheers!
